Dal Palak

Highly nutritious and multi-flavoured dal - very quick to make, especially if you you have a pressure cooker. The jeera, red chili and lemon come together to create a mind-blowing and sensational flavour, leaving you yearning for more.

Soak green gram dal [moong dal] in water for about an hour.
Clean and chop spinach leaves into fairly tiny pieces.
Pressure cook palak and dal along with salt and turmeric powder.
When done, add a tsp of garam masala powder and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
In a pan, melt butter. Allow a teaspoon for cumin seeds to splutter.
Add 4 whole red chillies, a pinch of asafoetida, and a teaspoon of red chili powder.
Pour this over the hot dal.

Go ahead and indulge yourself - enjoy this tasty dal with rice or roti!!!
